"Blind Goddess - Hannah Wilhelmsen #1" by Anne Holt (translated by Tom Geddes)
Blind Goddess (Thorndike Thrillers) - Anne Holt

The good things about "Blind Goddess":

  1. The story is told using some cleverly intersecting timelines in a way that makes the story less linear, increases tension and sustains some useful ambiguity
  2. The action scene - there's only one - not much else really happens, despite there being multiple killings - is well-done.
  3. It's set in Norway so there's snow and lots of polite aggression.


Things that made *Blind Goddess" a 2.5 star read:

  1. I didn't care about any of the characters - even when they were the good guys and in mortal danger. The writing was too arms-length - too dependent on an omniscient authorial voice. I felt like I was reading a screenplay.
  2. There was so little tension that, even though the plot is quite clever, I was tempted to give up about halfway through and read something that provoked more than mild curiosity.
  3. What little tension there was depended on unlikely events, like a car failing for no reason or a man being so worried by a vague threat that he suicides.
  4. The relationship between the main police officer and the prosecutor was central to the story and yet, after reading the whole thing, I still didn't know what that relationship was.

My advice: unless you're a true scandi crime fan, wait for the TV adaptation to come out.

Can Marry or Goddess energy shine Light through Will of God even within a dualist environment
A-Ma Alchemy of Love - Nataša Pantović Nuit
A-Ma: Alchemy of Love - Nataša Pantović Nuit

When I tried sharing this on my Facebook Page I was not allowed to do so. Someone would tag it as spam whenever I tried to share it. So do stay with me, read the book during this weekend when it is FREE contemplate the question and participate within the discussion. It looks like this is an important subject someone really wishes us not to discuss...


This one is for my dear spiritual friends that are in tuned with the Goddess energy. A-Ma Alchemy of Love my historical fiction book set in China in the 17th century during the Age of Enlightenment is a story of an incarnated soul who understood how Yin, Marry, Goddess shines Light through Will of God. Download for free this weekend and read about a non-hierarchical approach to spirituality and do leave a review I truly wish to read your experiences / thoughts about the subject. 

Can Mary's or Goddess' energy shine Light through Will of God? Don't we live in a dual environment, below the Abyss? Isn't "Light" so much guided by Lucifer and "Will of God" a male quality that has been abused for so many centuries? 

A-Ma and Enlightenment quote from Nataša Pantović Nuit

Review: Where a Goddess Belongs by Stephanie Julian
Where A Goddess Belongs: an Etruscan Magic novel (Forgotten Goddesses Book 4) - Stephanie Julian

Kari is the Etruscan Goddess of Health, and although she and her sisters are mostly forgotten by the modern world, Kari has been able to maintain a high level of power. Allowing herself to remain captive for three months, Kari is waiting for the right time to share the truth, and her love, with the two men she knows she was meant to be with.


Jacoby and Den have been friends since childhood, both coming from dark magic Malandante families. They’ve kept hidden their true abilities, waiting for the best time to make a break from their evil families. Now is crunch time, and they have to decide if they can trust Kari and the Lucani wolves.


While it’s been a few years since the previous book, I was able to jump back into the Forgotten Goddesses series with relative ease. Where a Goddess Belongs is part of the larger series plot, forwarding the story arc and involving characters from both this series and the Lucani Lovers series. However, it’s written to be a standalone romance and contains enough backstory and detail that one could jump in with this book. As I read on, bits and pieces of the world filtered back, filling in any gaps. 


The romance between Kari and her men is the focus of the book. As with most paranormal romances, the characters connect quickly, as if fate brought them together for a purpose. In fact, Kari even says a quick prayer to her sister, the goddess of fate, thanking her for bringing Jacoby and Den to her. Having been their “captive” (she could have easily escaped) for a few months gives some weight to the speed at which the coupling occurs. Each had been observing the other, lusting after the other, knowing their pairing would occur eventually. (They are a ménage but no m/m.)


While the romance aspect of the story has a clear path, the overall story arc feels a bit incomplete, or rather like a few chapters from a larger tale. The Mal are trying to take Kari and force her powers on to one of their own children, giving them control. But we’ve yet to fully understand the Mal’s goals and intent. And while the romance finalized by the end of the book, there is no closure on much of the other elements of the book—things brought up but then dropped without further mention or follow up. I was also disappointed by the lack of insight and healing for Jacoby, who struggles with the depth of his powers and the results of his actions. Finally, there were a couple of sections that seemed contradictory and caused me some confusion.


In the end, I enjoyed my time back with the goddesses and Lucani. I look at Where a Goddess Belongs as a re-introduction to the series, with hopes the author continues to develop the overall story arc in future titles. 


My Rating:  C+ Liked It, but I had issues

Not feeling it...
Goddess of Light - P.C. Cast

I've been reading this for over a month, and I just cannot find momentum. So I'm just moving on. It's not a terrible story, but it isn't holding my attention. I'm feeling forced to read this, and nothing turns me off more than forcing me to do anything.

Artemis: Wild Goddess of the Hunt (Olympians) - George O'Connor

Another fine installment from Mr O'Connor, done in his usual thorough research and mortal interpretation. There is some overlap from Apollo but that is to be expected because the twins had several stories that they share. Great pictures and the multiple POV works well for this book.
